THE RCC WEEKLY 



Volume 2, Issue 29 
September 27, 2012 



WiSIOriProiect 



In the Vision Project report, which 
was issued by Commissioner 
Freeland's office on September 20 th , 
RCC is recognized for several 
accomplishments. First, we are 
lauded for tripling the rate at which 
students advance from 

developmental math to college- 
level math. The report also praises 
the College for its five-year grant 
with Achieving the Dream. Further, 
we also received kudos for being 
awarded two gold certificates from 
the Massachusetts Life Sciences 
Consortium, for offering both a 
biotechnology associate's degree 
and a biotechnology certificate. 
Finally, Renee Keys, an RCC 2012 
Biotechnology graduate, is featured 
in a special column highlighting her 
accomplishments.
